Moringa-coated sand filters as a sustainable solution for clean water

Traditional water remedy utilizing moringa seeds solely removes 90 – 99% of pathogens whereas permitting fouling of the water over time. Over the previous seven years Dr. Velegol’s analysis group has created an modern and sustainable course of that solves these two issues. When crushed seeds are added to water after which combined with sand the antimicrobial, moringa oleifera cationic
protein (MOCP) within the seeds adsorbs to the sand creating “sticky killer” sand. She will talk about experimental outcomes and theoretical modeling to point out how this sand can be utilized to take away 99.99% of pathogens and produce clean and storable ingesting water.

Presenter – Dr. Stephanie Butler Velegol acquired her B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Drexel University and her Chemical Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University. She has been on the Penn State Engineering school for the final 10 years instructing and doing analysis on water and wastewater remedy. Dr. Velegol has suggested over a dozen college students on an modern use of moringa seeds for sustainable water remedy.

  1. This was sooooo helpful. I am currently on my second year studying the capabilities of moringa especially it's ability to purify water and I have gotten more information from this video than I have anywhere else. Thank you!!

  2. While watching I began to wonder on it's potential use in places like hiking.

    I would love to see if it was possible to have moringa charged sand in a water bottle that I could fill along the trails, and allow it to swish around the water all day, hence giving more opportunity to have every particle be touched. Then at the end of the day turn that bottle over to be filtered Into another bottle (giving it an additional opportunity to be filtered) with some sort of filter that is thin (like a coffee filter), light weight, and easily compostable for keeping the sand in the original bottle.

    That would greatly reduce the amount of plastic waste from current trail/hiking type of water filters!

    Currently, I'm thinking of bringing some seeds with for pre- filtering the water before using a filter, that's made for the trails/hiking water found along the way. I'm just not a fan of having extra plastics being wasted later once they're filtering ability is used up!

  3. Wow I was on my way home and I was thinking about how crushed Moringa seeds and making water filters . Luckily after I arrived home I found this video . I had know idea about having to remove its beneficial oil and the negative micron charged stuff in the oil . Has anyone ever thought of using Korean medicinal sea salt baked in 3 yr old bamboo stalks capped off with some sort of mineral clay . This is the only salt that kills types of Salmonella and it has the ability to add healthy electrolytes to the water . But of course you don’t want salt water but a healthy lightly electrolyte water . And if the salt is ground up to a particle size that may assist in surface contact to the sticky sand . And this expensive 1000 yr old salt recipe can be prepared by the company eliminating the overall cost of the special Korean 9x baked sea salt . If there is a way Quantum particles can help make this a effective use . I was also thinking of Haiti and starting a kibbutz as only done in Israel would save Haitians if there were a few thousand of these Kibbutz . I became fascinated by this way of living when I was in Haifa Israel in the mid 80s . That would be amazing if Haiti could start producing water treatment filters or products containing Moringa tree seeds . Which can grow in Haiti I believe .
